  • Do you think its worth discussion to raise the profile of victims and the lack of justice for some?
  • Have you had experience of crime?  Were there witnesses who would not come to your aid? Did you find this difficult to deal with?



Victims often go unheard, ignored, die or suffer life changing effects. They often do so unnecessarily as many know of their plight but say and do nothing.
